Talkeetna Bluegrass Festival celebrates its last after years of Borough struggle

For hardcore music festival fans across Alaska, this weekend will be bittersweet.  It is the last Talkeetna Bluegrass Festival….ever.  That’s a promise made by organizers. Organziers complain that it’s the policies of the Mat Su Borough that have finally shut down the festival for good.  Sue Deyoe has more on the end of the largest  summer music festival in Alaska.  (note – the story says the festival is on private land NORTH of Talkeetna – its actually south of Trapper Creek AND Talkeetna, but north of the Talkeetna “Y”)
